2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

If Reshad Jones wasn't in the top spot, Collins would be the clear choice. He finished last season as the top IDP scorer among DBs, and likely would have held the distinction even if Jones had been fully healthy. Collins' 125 tackles, four sacks and five interceptions gave him one of the all-time best box scores for a defensive back. Regression is all but assured, and yet Collins could give up a big chunk of last year's production and still contend for the top spot. With 237 tackles in his first two seasons, Collins figures to produce at an elite level for a long time.

2016

The Giants defense was a mess last year and Collins will likely never be an asset in coverage, but his IDP profile heading into Year 2 is very encouraging. His tackle upside is convincing after posting 112 (84 solo) on 1,093 snaps, both because it's consistent with the skill set he showed in college at Alabama, as well as because a similar snap count remains within reach in 2016. The Giants have a pair of youngsters added to their safety rotation in rookie third-round pick Darian Thompson and second-year fifth-round pick Nat Berhe, but neither has seen the field in the NFL.

2015

A second-round draft pick, Collins is all but guaranteed a starting job, making him a much less risky IDP investment than most would assume of a rookie. The Giants were comically thin at safety before trading up to draft Collins and plan to use him immediately. A classic strong safety, Collins' skills fit best in the box, where he should have plenty of tackle opportunities in a division with two of the league's most run-heavy teams (Philadelphia and Dallas). The Giants allowed a league-high 4.9 yards per carry last year, meaning plenty of runners should slip into the secondary.
